UGC checks 53 private universities, finds only five ‘in order’

Union Minister for Human Resource Development MM Pallam Raju
has said that out of 53 private universities inspected by the
University Grants Commission (UGC) only five had been found to be in order. Out of the total 145 private universities, only 53 had been inspected, the minister said while replying to supplementaries during question
hour in the Rajya Sabha.

“Fifty-three universities of the total 145 were
inspected to see how many were following UGC norms… five of these were found
in order, and came clear. Once we get some complaint, we inspect the
university. We give them some time to rectify, but if even after that they do
not follow regulations, they are asked to close,” Raju said.

The minister added that the UGC, which looks after all
non-technical education, had no power to shut down private universities. The
UGC can only direct them to close courses against which complaints have been
received, he explained.

Speaking about the two pending bills in parliament,
Educational Tribunal Bill and National Accreditation Regulatory Authority
(NARA) for Higher Educational Institutions Bill, he said if these bills are
passed ‘it would help in further regulating private universities.’

“I take this opportunity to urge the members to pass
the bill for setting up an education tribunal and another one for an
accreditation authority,” Raju said.

He also accepted that there were weaknesses in the UGC and
the government was trying to strengthen it.

  1. Very nice, it appears that this is another trick of publicizing the names of Universities. Pay the minister to claim that five are in order (because each of these five will offer few crores as advertisement charges to the minister). Once, these universities are declared standard, they can take donations from students (first put in advertisement and then get back from the customers in manyfold returns).
    The question comes how these uiversities were given sanction to start? Who allowed them to enroll students if there was no quality? Are UGC, AICTE and other regulatory bodies so dumb to let hundreds of institutes and universities to start without sufficient competency? Then what they are for. Better, the government should openly tell that anyone can start a technical/ nontechnical course and run it if students come to you. At least people will invest the money in developing their organizations rather than paying affiliation fees to these so called regulatory bodies.

  2. Many universities like CMJ,EIILM,ManavBharti,St Peters,Prist University,Vinayak Mission University are just to name a few….they just sell degrees to students through various study centres…This is common case is almost every town and cities. My question is how can the government keep quiet even after the centres publish advertisements offering to give every possible degrees from such universities within 3-6 months with backdate admission. This process is called ONE-SITTING DEGREE..Is this what our govt working? Very disgusting matter…

  3. I fully agree with Mr Rabijit Dey. It’s high time MHRD/ UGC must take suitable action , since private universities like CMJ, EIILM, Manav Bharati and deemed universities like Vinayaka Mission, St Peeters, Rajasthan vidyapeeth. etc. openly selling degrees, UG, PG , even PPG – research degrees.For example new private universities , Sai Nath university ( Ranchi), Swami Vivekenda University ( Sagar, MP) started enrolling for M.Phil / PhD programs through study centres across the country, when they do not have fully equipped campus or faculty members. Do MHRD/ UGC look in to such things………… Only making policies / regulations is not going to solve the problem.

  6. Self proclaimed Delhi Boards websites are sale on degrees
    Primary education is basic first requirement of every learner to get proper skills and knowledge. But in India now with the blessing of politician and bad corrupted bureaucracy it is not required to children study in primary school. It is gone are the days when children used to learn alphabetical, short stories, essay and write a application to get a leave from school.
    All over India there are number of board has been opened. The aim of this system is to educate all without reading or writing. On the web site there are a number of boards that is providing degrees but these boards have not any proper records of any students except internet website. The director of such type boards print degrees and sale it to agents . In Delhi, a number of education boards are supply degrees all over India, such types of boards as a delhiboard.org, delhiboard.in, bhsedelhi.co, bhsedelhi.com, bhsedelhi.org, csseducation.org, cshedelhi.in, bsedudelhi.org, bhsedelhie.org, bsssedelhi.com, www. Bhse.co.in, bhsedelhi.info, http://www.bhsedelhi.indn, bhsedelhi.co.in, bhse-delhi.co etc. internet has provided a great facilities to education Mafia to flourish their business without any interruption. No media, govt. or public bother to this malpractices and fleecing students. Education Mafia has killed the primary education as a result without reading or writing anybody can pass higher secondary within a hours to pay huge fees.
    Daily there are advertisement in news papers do higher secondary/ matric class without passing eight class. Education Mafia has opened a number of fake boards all over India and their agents are working in every nook and corner of India to supply 10th and +2 degrees. It seems there is no education criteria of primary education if there are some norms, rules and regulation of the education it has been lying in the files. Bureaucracy and politician has ruined the basic education. Education Mafias are selling degrees and collecting millions of rupees, dividing shares among politician s and bureaucrats.
    All these board are running in small places there is not a single school that is affiliated to these boards where teachers teach to students in daily classes. Pay fees to agent and get degree within the hours. Above said education board has very quick services and the owners of these boards live a luxurious life, enjoy in five stars hotel. It is a very lucrative business to sale basic education and earn millions of rupees with the help and connivance of corrupted politician and bureaucrats.
    I think it has been very difficult rein it. There is not any government law to check this malpractice that has been stick with basic education in our country? Is there any education minister, CBI, MHRD, education department to investigate this education Mafia. Or we may think it is legalized in corrupted country where everything is on sale.

  9. Dear sir/madam,

    I am a registered PhD scholar with private university in rajasthan. I had followed all the terms and conditions for thesis submission. In this regard, I had published few articles (a minimum of 2 articles is required for thesis submission). In the final thesis, the work published in articles was included in my thesis, as the published articles are a part of my thesis work.

    But, in the plagiarism check the published work from my thesis was shown as plagiarism. The university authorities are not accepting the plagiarism from my thesis articles.

    Its difficult to write two versions from a single research work, one for article publication and the other for thesis book.

    I hope UGC will understand the problems faced by research scholars throughout india and give clear directive to the universities (if not given earlier), to not consider the plagiarism from the thesis articles in the final plagiarism.

    Please save us. Are there any guidelines to handle this kind of situation.

  11. Hello

    Here i am discussing about NIILM University as per my review its total worst becuase they started NSB School of business school in new delhi ( Director richa sechdev) In 2008 they taken more than 800 students each student fees was 4 lakh 60 thousand.

    Really they sucked all student i am one of them. now they closed NSB and started NIILM.

    I am saying they doing business with Education and suking poor peoples ( 80% peoples now payment bank installment becuase they not reconizged with any UGC )

    So be aware before go for admission you can check video on youtube NSB Strike videos

    thx
